Kevin Kolb Deal Poll, 3rd Quarter Version: Was It A Good Deal?

This is the fifth in a series of polls on the Kolb for DRC and a second trade. I want to track ROTB members' opinions of the deal as the season progresses.

The first poll was right after the trade occurred. The initial poll was actually much closer than I thought it would be with 55% voting it was a good deal and 44% voting it was not. The second poll was taken after the preseason. The second poll had an amazing 88% of voters voting that the Kolb deal was a good deal for the Cardinals. The third poll was after the fourth Cardinals' regular season game. At that time the Cardinals were 1-3 with three straight losses. The third poll had come down slightly to 74% of ROTBers voting that the Kolb deal was a good deal for the Cardinals. The fourth poll was after 8 games and thanks to being placed on the main page by the ROTB coaching staff got significantly more votes. Only 39% voted yes with 60% voting no. The Cardinals were at 2-6 with Kolb is 1-6 as the Cardinals' starter. Skelton played a game, due to a Kolb injury, and the Cardinals managed a win, albeit against another pretty bad NFL team the Rams.

Since then Skelton has played three more games and although a very vocal group on ROTB thought a qb controversy was brewing, Skelton appears as inconsistent as Kolb and if there ever was a controversy the coaches did not appear to agree. The Cardinals are now 5-7 having won three of the last 4 games since the last poll. After missing the first three games since the last poll, Kolb finally returned from his injury in the last game of this quarter of the season and the team got a hard win over huge rival Dallas with an offensive score in overtime. Cards fans are again mentioning the playoffs, though I personally think they are borderline delusional but I understand this is the beauty of being a Cardinal fan. I will agree the playoffs are not yet a statistical impossibility.

Some have also pointed out that DRC has not made much of an impact in Philly. The argument is that while he was a first round pick, he was no longer performing at an elite db level.



I will put up another poll after the completion of the regular season and likely continue the polls into next year.

Comments are appreciated, especially if you are changing your vote from a previous poll and why you are changing your vote. Each poll will be yes or no only. This poll will be open up until about game time Sunday.
